DAILY SCRIPTURE – 2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5

 

master - daily Scripture Bible

 

ENGLISH / BÉARLA / WAMAREKANI / АНГЛИЙСКИЙ / ENGLISCH / ANGLAISE / INGLES

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! (NKJV) 2 Timothy 3:1-5

 

IRISH / GAEILGE

Ach bíodh a fhios seo agat, go dtiocfaidh aimsir chontúirteach sna laethanta deiridh: Beidh fir ina leannáin orthu féin, leannáin airgid, bródúil, bródúil, blasphemers, easumhail do thuismitheoirí, gan bhuíochas, míshuaimhneas, neamhghrámhar, neamh-mhaolú, clúmhilleadh, gan smacht féin, brúidiúil, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure seachas lovers of God, a bhfuil cineál na diadhachta ach ag séanadh a chumhacht. Agus ó dhaoine den sórt sin cas ar shiúl! (NKJV) 2 Tiomóid 3:1-5

 

SWAHILI / KISWAHILI

Lakini ujue neno hili, ya kuwa siku za mwisho kutakuwako nyakati za hatari; kwa maana watu watakuwa wenye kujipenda wenyewe, wenye kupenda fedha, wenye kujisifu, na wenye kiburi, wenye kutukana, wasiotii wazazi wao, wasio na shukrani, wasio watakatifu, wasio na upendo, wasiosamehe, wasingiziaji, wasio na kiasi. , wakatili, wasiojali mema, wasaliti, wakaidi, wenye kiburi, wapendao anasa kuliko kumpenda Mungu, wenye mfano wa utauwa, lakini wakikana nguvu zake. Na ujiepushe na watu kama hao! (NKJV) 2 Timotheo 3:1-5

 

RUSSIAN / РУССКИЙ

Но знайте, что в последние дни наступят времена тяжкие: ибо люди будут самолюбивы, сребролюбивы, хвастливы, горды, богохульники, родителям непослушны, неблагодарны, нечестивы, нелюбовны, непрощающи, клеветники, невоздержны , жестокие, презирающие добро, предатели, упрямые, надменные, более сластолюбивые, чем боголюбивые, имеющие вид благочестия, силы же его отрекшиеся. И от таких людей отвернуться! (NKJV) 2 Тимофею 3:1-5

 

GERMAN / DEUTSCH

Das aber sollst du wissen, dass in den letzten Tagen schlimme Zeiten eintreten werden. Denn die Menschen werden sich selbst lieben, geldgierig sein, prahlerisch, überheblich, Lästerer, den Eltern ungehorsam, undankbar, unheilig,lieblos, unversöhnlich, verleumderisch, unbeherrscht, gewalttätig, dem Guten feind,Verräter, leichtsinnig, aufgeblasen; sie lieben das Vergnügen mehr als Gott; dabei haben sie den äußeren Schein von Gottesfurcht, deren Kraft aber verleugnen sie. Von solchen wende dich ab! (SCH 2000) 2 Timotheus 3:1-5

 

FRENCH / FRANÇAISE

Sache que, dans les derniers jours, il y aura des temps difficiles. Car les hommes seront égoïstes, amis de l’argent, fanfarons, hautains, blasphémateurs, rebelles à leurs parents, ingrats, irréligieux, insensibles, déloyaux, calomniateurs, intempérants, cruels, ennemis des gens de bien, traîtres, emportés, enflés d’orgueil, aimant le plaisir plus que Dieu, ayant l’apparence de la piété, mais reniant ce qui en fait la force. Eloigne-toi de ces hommes-là. (NEG 1979) 2 Timothée 3:1-5

 

SPANISH / ESPAÑOL

Es bueno que sepas que, en los últimos días, habrá tiempos muy difíciles. Pues la gente solo tendrá amor por sí misma y por su dinero. Serán fanfarrones y orgullosos, se burlarán de Dios, serán desobedientes a sus padres y malagradecidos. No considerarán nada sagrado. No amarán ni perdonarán; calumniarán a otros y no tendrán control propio. Serán crueles y odiarán lo que es bueno. Traicionarán a sus amigos, serán imprudentes, se llenarán de soberbia y amarán el placer en lugar de amar a Dios. Actuarán como religiosos pero rechazarán el único poder capaz de hacerlos obedientes a Dios. ¡Aléjate de esa clase de individuos! (NTV) 2 Timoteo 3:1-5

ENGLISH / BÉARLA / WAMAREKANI / АНГЛИЙСКИЙ / ENGLISCH / ANGLAISE / INGLES

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (NKJV) Galatians 5:13-14

IRISH / GAEILGE

Ar a son, a bhráithre, glaodhadh chun na saoirse sibh; ní hamháin ná húsáid an tsaoirse mar dheis don fheoil, ach trí ghrá déan freastal ar a chéile. Óir tá an dlí go léir comhlíonta in aon fhocal amháin, fiú sa mhéid seo: “Gráóidh tú do chomharsa mar tú féin.” (NKJV) Galataigh 5:13-14

SWAHILI / KISWAHILI

Maana ninyi, ndugu, mliitwa mpate uhuru; lakini msitumie uhuru kama fursa kwa mwili, bali tumikianeni kwa upendo. Kwa maana torati yote hutimizwa katika neno moja, nalo ni hili, Umpende jirani yako kama nafsi yako. (NKJV) Wagalatia 5:13-14

SPANISH / ESPAÑOL

Pues ustedes, mis hermanos, han sido llamados a vivir en libertad; pero no usen esa libertad para satisfacer los deseos de la naturaleza pecaminosa.

Once upon a time I believed I couldn’t draw or paint. Drafting, yes. Design, yes. Sing, play the piano, dance? Absolutely. And let’s not forget my British accent and acting.

But draw?

When I attended Converse College, though, two professors in particular—Zan Schuweiler and Teresa Prater—drew out and awakened my inner artist. Part of the Interior Design curriculum includes drawing (taught by Ms. Prater.)

Doubt and hesitation walked through the door of that first art class. But by semester’s end, I had not only embraced this newly unearthed skill, I had signed up for a second semester.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, (NKJV) 2 Corinthians 10:4-5

IRISH / GAEILGE

Óir ní feoileach iad airm ár gcogaíochta, ach is cumhachtaí iad i nDia chun daingin a tharraingt anuas, chun argóintí agus gach ní ard a ardaíonn é féin i gcoinne eolas Dé a thabhairt anuas, ag tabhairt gach smaoinimh i mbraighdeanas chun umhlaíocht Chríost, (NKJV) 2 Corantaigh. 10:4-5

BIRD’S NEST BOOKS and ART – ETSY SHOP

Once upon a time I believed I couldn’t draw or paint. Drafting, yes. Design, yes. Sing, play the piano, dance? Absolutely. And let’s not forget my British accent and acting.

But draw?

When I attended Converse College, though, two professors in particular—Zan Schuweiler and Teresa Prater—drew out and awakened my inner artist. Part of the Interior Design curriculum includes drawing (taught by Ms. Prater.)

Doubt and hesitation walked through the door of that first art class. But by semester’s end, I had not only embraced this newly unearthed skill, I had signed up for a second semester.

History, however, has long been a passion (I only wish I had loved half as much when I was in school) and the requisite art history courses (taught by Ms. Schuweiler) fascinated me.

Fast forward a few years. Well, step back a few years first—I’ve an end table that I’ve had for 30-ish years and have wanted to paint it with a marbly looking finish, one of those projects that seemed perpetually on the back burner. Now fast forward; a couple of years ago I began hearing about acrylic pour painting and seeing posts and images of it and I fell in love with the results; it was what I’ve wanted for the aforementioned end table, and I decided I had to try it.

I did a few really simple and basic pours and shared pics with my daughter, who then ordered a generous supply of paints and canvases and the pouring medium for me. That was a little over a year ago.

I have since learned that there a countless techniques and variations, my favorite of which is swiping combined with tilting. If it sounds messy, it is, or can be. (I’m rather messy in my work.) Another favorite is called a Dutch Pour, which uses air (hair dryer, straw, etc) to move the paint. The results are (can be) stunning but I’ve yet to master that one.

Well, naturally, in this digital age and my physical (and financial) limitations, I have opened an Etsy shop, Bird’s Nest Books and Art.

I’m also trying my hand at watercolors and oil pastels, both of which I love working with. I’ll be adding those to my shop soon as well. And, of course, my books. (I need to have print copies on hand before I take that step.) BONUS: My granddaughter is getting in on it, too; I’ll be adding some of her pieces soon as well—although, she’s sixteen and working AND has a boyfriend!
